My family has spent a week at Fern for 14 years now. That says something about how nice it is. Fern isn't a vacation where you get away - its a vacation where you are going home -seeing old friends and making new ones. Its big enough to have something for everyone - yet small enough that you all know eachother after just a few days. I've made lifelong friends here as have my daughters. We've even vacationed elsewhere with 'Fern" friends.
The staff is friendly, entertaining and there to please. It amazes me that with the thousands of people passing through - each year they know who we are - even walking behind us! The best day is when the staff does a hilarious lip sync show.
There are a variety of accomodations from typical hotel to separate little houses. Food is excellent with a wide variety of choices - and the pool side lunch buffet keeps the vacation going instead of having to go inside. My only complaint if I have one is the entertainment which was top notch has slipped quite a bit - I am sure due to costs and the economy.
